About the Book
Christmas has always been Max’s favorite time of the year, but this year, when he loses track of his Mommy inside of a toy superstore, Christmas becomes a total nightmare. With the help of a store Santa, both Max and his Mommy learn that Christmas is not about the presents you give and receive, Christmas is about being there for the ones you love.
HJ Books stands for Hero's Journey Books. We learned about the term Hero's Journey from Christopher Vogler, who used it to synthesize the work of famed mythologist Joseph Campbell. The Hero's Journey is a classic storytelling structure in which a hero sets out on an outward or inward adventure and must overcome several obstacles and setbacks in order to achieve an important objective. The books available for purchase on our Blurb account share stories of heroes' journeys written by students at High Tech High Chula Vista. We hope you (purchase and) enjoy our books, as we put all of our hearts, souls and efforts into these works.
